About this Program

Students in this program work with both commercial and residential heating, ventilating, air conditioning, and refrigeration equipment (HVAC/R ). This comprehensive background together with shop skills in layout, estimating, installation, and repair qualifies graduates to enter one of the world's fastest-growing industries. Employment exists with manufacturers, engineers, contractors, and specialized service firms. Students learn to research and develop applications of more efficient, cost-effective equipment and procedures. Many new, exciting, and energy-saving innovations are being developed. Technicians train in this industry to provide the technology to control the environment in any enclosed area, from a home to a space capsule. This includes controlling the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) by utilizing mechanical means to remove pollutants and maintain desired humidity and temperature settings. The knowledge to design, install and maintain these special environments for people, products, and perishables is essential today.
